My Free-Style Loc Updo

Leave a comment

July 6, 2010 by The Lupie Chick


Thanks to the extreme summer heat here in DC – hitting near 100 degrees, I had to figure out how to stay cool with this hair. My locs are now shoulder length and they are HOOOOTTTTTTT!!!!!! I’m still a virgin when it comes to loc styling. I started playing around with a few looks, and got frustrated- so I decided to just “free style” it. No real technique, no dryer, no curlers, nothing complicated.. Just let it do what it do…

Things You’ll Need:
* Styling Gel ( I used Pure Aloe Vera)
* (6) small rubber bands
* (1) large rubber band
* Large straight pins

Instructions:

1. Section hair into 2 sections ( you should be able to make a pony tail in the back, and a pony tail in the front)

2. Gather the back pony tail together- pulling all the locs straight down- take 2-3 locs and wrap them around the pony tail ( you are using the locs to make a pony tail holder) secure the ends with a small straight hair pin or tuck loose pieces into the pony tail. ** You can also use a rubber band or a pony tail holder to make a pony tail and wrap the locs around the rubber band to hide it-if desired**

3. After the pony tail is secured- take the ends (loose locs) and gather them together, put a rubber band around the end ( if some of the locs fall out of the pony tail – its OK-you can secure them later)

4. take the pony tail and roll it under- secure with a couple of hair pins ( I used
(1) on each side and (1) in the middle)- the back is complete

5. (Front) section locs and make flat twist ( I did 6 flat twist going back). Secure the twist with the small rubber bands

6. Once all the twist are created and secured- freestyle and twist- which ever direction it went ( or felt comfortable) is the direction I twisted.

7. Tuck locs as you roll, and secure with hair pins ( I used a total of 7 hair pins in the front)

8. Apply a little Aloe Vera gel to your edges to control any fly aways

9. Wrap hair at night with a satin scarf/bonnet, and oil scalp as needed.

**Note**

This style took 15 minutes to complete.

#lupustaughtme To pay attention to what my body is saying to me. I should not ignore the little things. It has also taught me that I am the deciding factor in if I win or lose.

@blackhealthmatters ・・・ One of the early symptoms of lupus is a low-grade fever for no apparent reason. Because it may hover somewhere between 98.5˚F (36.9˚C) and 101˚F (38.3˚C), you might not think to see a doctor. People with lupus may experience this type of fever off and on.

#lupustaughtme “The doctors may say one thing, but God has the last say so. Its taught me how strong I truly am. To appreciate the little things, the activities of my limbs, being able to run my fingers through my scalp. Ive learned to say no, stand up for myself, enforce boundaries, rest when I need it, listen to my body, and most of all, love, embrace, and enjoy life. Its a beautiful journey. “ Thank you Chakeria 🦋💜✋🏾. . . . . #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #spoonielife #chronicillness #NaturallyLupie #LupieChick #LupusChick #lupuschick #lupusadvocate #POP #blackhealthmatters #selfiesforlupus #selfies4lupus #lupusAwarenessMonth #lhandsign #LupusStrong #lupusadvocate #lupusawarenessmonth #lupusfighter #lupussurvivor #fucklupus #knowlupus #runlupus
@blackhealthmatters ・・・ About 90 percent of people with lupus experience some level of fatigue. An afternoon nap does the trick for some people but sleeping too much during the day can lead to insomnia at night. It may be difficult, but if you can remain active and stick to a daily routine, you may be able to keep your energy levels up. Speak to your doctor if you’re living with debilitating fatigue. Some causes of fatigue can be treated.
